We explore the challenges of sticking to our New Year intentions with humor and a dash of candor, from curtailing the comfort of familiar titles to embracing indie darlings. We're also considering a deeper, book club-style engagement with the games we cherish.As the horizon of 2024 comes into view, we're turning the spotlight on the upcoming gaming blockbusters and hidden indie jewels waiting to be uncovered. We can hardly contain our excitement for 'Star Wars Outlaws' and 'Suicide Squad Kills the Justice League',  while Mike adds a dash of nostalgia with his anticipation for revivals like 'Tomb Raider' and 'Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.' But it's not all about looking forward – we also talk about our current forays into virtual reality with Meta Quest. Join us as we share our most memorable VR moments and mishaps.
